Catching an exposed tree root or a stray rock won’t cut your hike short. The toe box is heavily protected making the Revel a choice for rock-filled trails. And the nubuck leather upper held up submerged in water for extended amount of time.
The KEEN Revel’s highlight is the insulation built into the upper and underfoot. I donned the boots and a thin pair of socks during crisp and cool fall days with the temperature dipping into the 30′s Fahrenheit. The insulation was noticeable.
The KEEN Revel is geared for multi-day backpacking trips. If you are looking for a beefier boot for the cooler days of fall and frigid winter days , it is an alternative to consider.
